Karina Glocker
Neighborhood — Unexpected Cartographies

24.07.23 06.10.23

Karina Glocker is a visual artist with a degree in visual arts from the IUNA with a focus on contemporary graphic expressions. Fragmentation, order, search, experimentation are words that build her artistic practice. They define her and question her in her daily work. She worked for thirteen years in cinema as a costume and set designer, experience that she takes as part of her training. Currently, she investigates the possibilities of graphic arts in Adriana Moracci’s workshop and explores other forms of art expansion in the interdisciplinary field of science, culture and nature.

In 2023, Karina came to our studio for a Production residency in which she developed graphic pieces that she then used for the construction of her artist’s book. During her process, an idea became a path of exploration of shapes and colors, which gave rise to various compositions and configurations that open the field to investigate and explore a territory within paper, sheets and unconventional formats in graphics.


As an urban inhabitant, the city presents itself to me as a big box of fragments, patterns, drawings of my own that I collect and then use with a careful selection for my works. Some of them shaped the process that explores the edges of the work, between an internal and an external space, in which there is a visual and a tactile quality. I choose to find a subtle structure to continue exploring. In the meantime, I wonder if this system is nothing more than a search, a way to sublimate a house of configurations to inhabit. As Didi Huberman mentions “… every space for reflection is carried by a thought that relates the parts, but this thought is not created anywhere”. I am interested in investigating these thoughts of external and internal spaces, the fragment stripped of its own becoming, forming a space of reciprocal relations in another happening.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
